EVERYDAY.BEAUTY.

Some of the beauty products I use everyday, and some of the books I force myself to put my 
laptop down for. I love reading. I write, so you have to enjoy reading- but it's harder than 
you think to make yourself stop playing on social media or editing photos. The easiest time
to read is when there's really nothing much else to do: plane journey, bath, end of
the world.

Anyway, back to the products. This Clarins HydraQuench mask has been a favourite since 
trying it last summer- it's a thick cream and you can apply as much as you like on your 
face, leave for 5-10 minutes, then when you wash it off your skin is glowing and softer than 
ever. I normally find 'hydrating' masks can actually sting and irritate my skin, but this one
calms and cools it.

Although oil actually makes my skin dry (I have no idea) (little round patches) (please tell me 
why) I like mixing a couple drops of Aesop's Fabulous Face Oil into a cream and using it more
 as a booster when my skin gets really dry. Man Tip: It's also doubles as a great beard oil for my 
boyfriend. I recently discovered this REN Hot Cloth Cleanser and I can't stop using it. I've had 
some trouble with using rose infused products in the past but this one is so creamy and gentle 
that there's nothing to complain about. Plus it comes with a great flannel to help get every little 
bit of make up off.

The Aesop handwash and Maison Francis Kurkdjian candles are also favourites that find
themselves used daily around my house.
